De La Hoya: Canelo-GGG 3 in 2020 - But Canelo-Kovalev is Bigger

Golden Boy Promotions CEO Oscar De La Hoya, who promotes Saul "Canelo" Alvarez, says a trilogy fight with Gennady Golovkin will indeed take place in 2020.

They fought to a controversial twelve round split draw in September 2017, and then Canelo won a close majority decision in their September 2018 rematch. Both fights took place at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.

Both Canelo and Golovkin have exclusive deals with the DAZN streaming service.


DAZN made a big push to have Canelo and Golovkin collide last weekend, but it wasn't going to happen - as the Mexican superstar has rejected the idea of facing GGG for a third time - at least for the moment.

The two fighters are going in separate directions right now.

On November 2 at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Canelo will move up by two full weight divisions to challenge WBO light heavyweight champion Sergey Kovalev. Win or lose, very few expect Canelo to return to the middleweight limit of 160-pounds.

Golovkin will be back next month, when he faces once-beaten Sergey Derevyanchenko for the vacant IBF middleweight title at Madison Square Garden in New York City.

De La Hoya says the third contest could take place in May or it could happen in September. Golovkin will turn 38-years-old in 2020.

“You will absolutely see Canelo and GGG fight next year,” De La Hoya said to The Los Angeles Times.

“It could be in May or September, but that fight will happen. But Canelo’s fight against Kovalev is huge. I think it’s bigger than a fight against GGG. It’s a mega-fight. Kovalev has a real shot to knock him out and beat him and people know that.”
